“Being a foster parent has been a wonderful experience. With the help of Grace Manor we have learned new ways of helping all ages of children. Grace Manor has stood by my side from the beginning. From training to calling [and] needing help with the kids. My husband and I have even had the opportunity of adopting a little boy too. Grace Manor helped with that process. Grace Manor is not only an organization to go through, they ended up being friends to the family.”
“I must say that Grace Manor, and especially [our worker] Sara, have been a great help in times of need. Your ear to hear, kind words and much more. You are doing an awesome job, and also Sunshine! GOD be with y'all, be blessed. Great is your reward.”
“Throughout our involvement with Grace Manor, my husband and I found the staff full of kindness and patience. Each member of the team that we encountered from Grace Manor answered our numerous questions, quieted our fears and took care of our girls! The best thing that my husband and I did, after deciding to foster, was choosing Grace Manor.”
“My husband and I are blessed beyond measure to have come in contact with Grace Manor, all by the grace of GOD!!!
